A lot of jobs have long-term benefits, and for a lot of people, that means staying home with their kids, taking care of pets and watching television.
But for a growing number of interns, their time with their families is all but gone.
As the economy has recovered, the demand for those kinds of internships has increased, so there are fewer places to go.
Many interns have found themselves stuck with a job that doesn’t require a high school diploma or a high-paying job market, and that could be the case for many.
“I think it’s pretty frustrating,” said Lauren F. Wieder, an intern at the Boston Public Library who started working there in 2013.
“I had my best year at my job, but I can’t do it anymore.
I want to go back to school.”
Internships aren’t necessarily about what the interns get paid, Wiedest said.
They’re about the people who work for them.
And the interns at the Library are among a growing pool of unpaid workers in Boston.
Some are full-time students or full-year college graduates who are applying for jobs that don’t require an advanced degree.
Some of them have internships because they’ve been offered them by a company that pays them an hourly rate.
Wieser, a software developer, said she’s been looking for a new gig for a year and a half.
She said she had been considering several locations for a few weeks.
After working on a book, she decided to work as an internship with the library’s digital media lab.
The library’s library staff is looking for someone with a “high degree of interest” in digital media and is looking at positions in both online and print, Wiesers said.
It’s a great opportunity to learn from someone with more experience and experience in digital production, she said.
And it also provides a chance to get experience working with a library employee and learn how to use the library in a way that doesn, she hopes, allow her to continue to teach.
She also said she feels confident that she could do a good job at the job if she got the chance.
“This is a very challenging position to be in, but if I do a really good job, I’m really excited about that,” Wiesering said.
“Because if I’m not there, it doesn’t matter what I do.
I’m going to go home.
I don’t care.”
The library is trying to get more of its interns on the job market and in the workforce.
It is providing a job search service for people to apply for jobs at a library branch or library computer lab.
It also is holding job fairs where interns can take a test and work at a local computer lab to see how they would do in the workplace.
Wrieser said she has been a part of several job fair for interns, and she said she is still looking for work.
“It’s very much a work in progress,” Wieders said, adding that she hopes that the Library can continue to grow.
The Boston Public Libaries library has about 1,600 employees and serves about 7,000 people a day, Woesers said and said she hopes her experience as an employee will help other people with different backgrounds in the library to be able to take on similar positions.
Wiveser said that she and others like her are hoping to eventually be able get a full-fledged job.
But, she noted, there are a lot more than the average intern who are working in libraries and working at libraries who aren’t making enough to live on.
“There are people who are homeless and don’t have money,” she said, “or people who can’t find a job because of the economy, or people who don’t know where to go for help.”
But WiesER said she understands why some people are hesitant to take a job with a public library, especially if they haven’t had a chance at a good one.
She noted that many libraries have a program called the Volunteer Workforce program that helps people find jobs and get them on the right track.
But WivesER said her internship didn’t provide much help in getting her job.
She had to make some choices that didn’t make sense to her.
WIESER said that at the end of the day, she just wanted to be a good person.
She and her husband have been trying to find a good place to live for the past two years, and they’re looking for an apartment in a safe neighborhood.
WoesER said when she got her job, she was grateful for it.
“And I just felt like, you know, I’ve done this before,” WIESERS said.
She added that she had the skills and the personality that she needed.
WOWSER said as long as she was paid and was given a fair amount of time, she had a great time working at the library.
“We really had a good time,” WOWSERS said
